World Distribution Services has opened a new 300,000-square-foot distribution facility in Tacoma, the company announced Oct. 10.

The facility, its fourth new location in less than two years, shows the creative warehouse logistics solutions provider’s commitment to the Pacific Northwest, WDS said.

The new facility adds warehouse capacity as well as cross-docking and inland distribution service, moving freight more fluidly and bypassing bottlenecks at other West Coast seaports, the company said.

The location offers a 36-foot clear height, 46 dock doors, a modern warehouse management system and lots of parking for trailers, the company added.

“Responding to market demand, as well as the specific needs of our customers, WDS has been aggressively growing, opening four facilities, totaling over 1 million square feet of warehouse space, over the last 24 months,” World Distribution Services Vice President Dale Young said. “With this facility … we also firmly establish WDS as a player on the West Coast.”
